    Owens fined for shirttail; questions motives

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ESPN.com news services


    SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Terrell Owens, fined $5,000 by the NFL on Wednesday for an untucked shirttail but not cited for his touchdown/autograph celebration Monday in Seattle, is implying that race is a factor in how his actions are perceived.

    "You have a white guy as an announcer and sportscaster," Owens was quoted as saying in the San Francisco Examiner. "Me, I'm black. I do it and I've already done some stuff in the past.

    "We're (African-Americans) more expressive than the white guys," Owen said. "You look at the skilled players. We're the ones that get into the end zone. We get in the end zone more than they do."


    What was the main reason the NFL fined Terrell Owens?
    Race influences the way his actions are perceived
    His untucked shirt was against the rules
    They wanted to punish him for his autograph stunt
    They wanted to punish him for past incidents



    Owens told the paper that the public misinterprets the actions of African-American athletes. He told the Examiner he's "shocked" at the nationwide reaction and contends that what he did was "harmless."

    Owens wasn't punished for pulling a pen from his sock to sign the football after a touchdown catch in the San Francisco 49ers' 28-21 victory over Seattle on Monday night.

    Instead, the league sent him a letter containing a much more common, minor fine for equipment violations.

    Owens called it "nonsense ... a very nit-picky thing."

    "It states on the notice that I specifically wore my shirt out during the game," Owens said. "I constantly tucked it in throughout the course of the game, and people were tugging on me, and it just came out."

    After beating cornerback Shawn Springs for the winning touchdown in the fourth quarter, Owens produced a pen, signed the football and presented it to his financial adviser in the front row.

    NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Owens won't be fined or suspended for the move, but similar displays will be punished.

    Owens told the Examiner that some fans and media members are overreacting.

    "I see my work like Picasso," Owens said. "He signed off on his work. I signed off on my work. I work hard during the week. I'm just trying to have fun.

    "You only have one day to display your talents."

    Personally I think the whole thing has been blown way out of proportion but I hate it when anyone tries to use the race card, using it as an excuse. He knew that what he was going to do was going to get attention or else he wouldn't have done it. He's an attention hog simple as that.

    I think Emmitt Smith is the only one who's been in the end zone more than Walter Payton--and BOTH have always acted like they've been there before--in fact, Sweetness always gave the ball to a lineman to spike!!

    Obviously Terrell has never learned from guys like him!! [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img]

    Terell Owens is a great reciever but (In best Chris Farley voice) [img]graemlins/yell.gif[/img] he needs to shut his big fat yapper! I wish he would stop referring to himself in the 3rd person too because that is anoyying! I did not have a problem with him signing the football after he scored, the problem I had was when he started spouting off.

    he also dropped a critical pass on the last drive of the game. he ain't no playmaker yet and he ain't ready for no prime time. he's a punk. plain and simple

    there is way too many good receivers in the nfl now to say anyones is the best. anyway i think of greatness in terms of durability and consistency. terrel owens was not a good receiver right away he was in the shadow of other receivers for awhile. look at rices or tim browns statistics overall thru their careers. terrel may be the best this season but thats it.
